Just call this Ford versus Holden with a twist. Or it could be the cranking of floodgates opening as buyers rush to embrace the US-made Mustang. Even before its December debut, the sixth-generation and officially first-in-Oz Pony car was so hot to trot it attracted forward orders.

    Eighty-eight percent of buyers are choosing 5. Yet the Falcon tallied just sales last year. Buyers are not forgetting the Holden Commodore, however, with 27, moved last year. No longer is the Commodore just fleet fodder, the portion of private buyers selecting more expensive V8 models stands at around 30 percent — the highest ever.

    Holden responded by giving those buyers what they wanted: The sports flagship SS V Redline represents absolutely the best our local engineers can do with such a big car. Besides, what better takes the fight to an iconic American than our own unique concept of a passenger-car-based sports utility?

    When the kW of the Mustang leads its rival by 2kW, but the Nm of the Commodore is 40Nm ahead of its lighter foe, things are going to be close. Two doors, two seats and either a tin lid covering a small boot, or a bit of canvas covering a backyard-pool-sized one — they are the configuration differences here. Okay, the Mustang gets two back seats, but they are basically unusable such is the lack of headroom and legroom.

    The leather on the seats feels as cheap as the hard-plastic surroundings. Then things get much better. The seats themselves are snug and supportive, offering heating and cooling functions and electric adjustment for the passenger, both of which are absent from its rival.

    Step into the Commodore and the front seats feel broader and less supportive — potentially perfect for rugged Aussie tradies more than your latte-wielding writer. Likewise the steering wheel feels too large and the gearshifter falls less naturally to hand. The ute has some technology tricks up its sleeve, however, adding a colour head-up display, internet apps connectivity, automatic park assist, reverse traffic and forward collision alerts and lane departure warning over its coupe rival.

    Meanwhile the driver sits higher inside the ute that stands mm tall, or 23mm above its sedan sibling and a full mm beyond the Ford. It means that while the wheelbase is shared with the Caprice, total length stops 77mm short of that limousine, resulting in less rear overhang. Check out the differences to the Mustang, though: Even the medium-sized Holden Malibu sedan has a 17mm-longer wheelbase. As a load lugger the SS V Redline ute makes a bloody great sports car.

    The ute has a payload of just kg and it can only tow kg where the sedan and Sportwagon with optional automatic can lug up to kg. That was back in with the 6. It may not be the popular choice, but the six-speed manual in the Ford is one of the best of its kind, with a short, slinky and direct throw between gears that is completely unexpected in a muscle car.

    The V8 reads as a modern template of a large-capacity naturally aspirated engine, with all-aluminium construction, dual camshafts and variable valve and camshaft timing. What it translates to is a glorious soundtrack as the engine extends with enthusiasm past rpm.
